Well this will be my first post, I found this site an accident, looking for somewhere to talk with another human being like me? I am 31 I am morbidly obese, I didnt realize how bad until this past weekend. I had to go to the ER by ambulance because of a shortness of breath and recently I've had a huge fluid build up on my legs and thighs. Upon the EMS coming I was informed they would have to call their bariatric unit, 20 min away, I assured them I could step up into the rig( I've done before) I gave my weight as been 600lbs, which I thought to be true. they said this was procedure, fine we waited, only to end up doing what I had intended, stepping up. I got going had to hear the hospitals arguing on who had to take me. One said their table( for MRI, which was thought to be needed)only held 450lbs and the other held only 400, one nurse suggested th KC zoo, Im not sure still if she was serious or being funny. Upon arriving to the hospital, every male with two hands was summoned to the ambulance bay to pry my fat ass from the rig, I calmlly got out like I had gotten in. The bed they had for me was too small, a regular sized person would have been uncomfortable. I was stuck in this bed for 6 hrs, talk about soreness. Only to be admitted to a room with you guessed it a smaller bed, they said they had one coming from sizewise(great name) It never came they said one couldnt be located, they are trying to tell me a Bed my size couldnt be located in the whole KC metro area? I finally got out of the bed to use the restrooms, I had trouble getting back in due to the air mattress I had trouble getting my leg high enough to beable to get it on the bedso it just hung off. I asked pleaded even begged and cussed for some assistance, the nurse just stood their and stared? WTH ? I was finally able to get my leg up after only getting a stool to get some better leverage. I finally just said I want out, Discharge was soon coming. Before I left the nurse wanted my weight, the bed scale wouldnt give an accurate reading, Instead of locating the scale, I know they have one, I've used it.I was taken to the loading docks for supply trucks to weigh myself on their freight scale. This is where I found out I weighed 806 lbs, yes 806, not the 600 I estimated. So while I fought back the tears, listening to the gasps and snickers of the cock workers, I went home. I want help, I consintly think of it, everything I find wants to do surgery, but no surgeon will touch me above 500lbs. I am at wits end, I go from suicidal thoughts to crying to just down right anger! Does anyone know what Im going through , any one know where some one in my condition get help?
